You demanded it, and here it is: our exclusive snap of a Swedish military combustobra incident, which shows just what happens when buxom female recruits subject government-issue brassieres to excessively "rigorous exercises":

Our sensational image of the combustobra incident

As you can see (in close-up, if you click the pic), fire-suppression operatives have moved quicker than a pack of Örebro devil girls to prevent a full-scale jub inferno. In her state of panic, the smouldering recruit has dropped her weapons, and three bullet-starved Yanks are closing in faster than you can say "National Rifle Association" to strip her firearms of their precious loads of ammunition.

On the right, meanwhile, Reg defence hack Lewis Page is photographically primed to capture the action should the incipient blaze require the hasty removal of female clothing.

Unsurprisingly, in all the excitement no one has clocked Abdullah Hassan Tali' al-Asiri launching a suicide bombing assault from the rear. The al-Qaeda batty-bomber's attempt to impose Islamic will has rather backfired, and his inadequate load of jacksie gelignite has done nothing more than move his arse a bit closer to his elbow.

Mercifully, Optimus Prime is on hand to mop up the resulting malodorous mess. ®

In case you're wondering, Lewis always dresses like that for work - on permanent standby should his bomb disposal skills be required to remove a Russkie limpet mine clamped to the hull of one of her Maj's naval vessels, or indeed in case a fellow journalist drops his or her iPhone down a particularly challenging khazi.
